The Aims of EDPA:
EDPA is the leading publication for Personal Assistants, secretaries and administrative staff in education
LATEST NEWS, Octoer 2016: the magazine now has a new name, EDPA, to celebrate that it is a global publication for PAs and Admins working in Education. The current issue should be leaving our offices around 25 November to reach subscribers.

The magazine was first published (under the name of "National Association of Headteachers' PAs" / "NAHPA") in 2001 and has been edited since 2012 by Angela Garry of Pica Aurum - the world's most connected Personal Assistant and PA Trainer, author of "Brave PAs" for PAs, EAs, secretaries and admin staff in education. Full ownership of the magazine transferred to Pica Aurum in April 2015. With the magazine growing internationally, it made sense to drop the "National" from the title, and change to "EDPA".

Each issue of EDPA provides 31 pages of Continuous Professional Development and motivational items specifically authored for the education audience, sourced from leading educational trainers, worldwide PA trainers, and from PAs, secretaries and administrative staff working in schools, colleges and universities globally. Plans are in development for a sister magazine for PAs working in Universities, plus a "Head's PA of the Year" award. Subscription to EDPA also includes access to the "Subscribers Only" resources section of this site, and membership of the LinkedIn EDPA discussion forum.
